    Sounds good. Yeah, I REALLY don't like Internet Brands these days either for pretty much the same reasons. I think they're just living off the past success of vBulletin 4 now.

    Out of curiosity, does it look like XenForo is as feature-complete then as vBulletin 4.2.2? It didn't look like it last time I checked. (which was a while ago)

    Out of the box it doesn't have several things like social groups and user photo albums. I've found add-ons for most of that stuff but several of them are paid and we didn't really use them much anyway. If people really want them back, though, I'm not opposed to it. Most of them are one time fees.

    Tags are one thing I'm on the fence about. I liked them but they also weren't really used for anything "real". However, I think over time we will figure out what we liked and didn't like and bring some of the features back. xenForo has a huge community of add-on developers (it seems even bigger than vB these days to me) that are pretty active and keep their add-ons pretty updated. You can find those here:

    White skin definitely doesn't look too shabby at all. But where's the main BU logo that we all know and love?

    Bruzz: All the videos in the OT youtube thread are broken because of the [m] tag. FYI.

    I'm using the Classic theme but I find the white b/g and amount of white to be a bit too much. Something in a grey-scale would be nice at sometime in the future. :)

    [Edit]Actually I've just gone back to the Master them..... it's darker and easier on my eyes. Personal preferences and all that......... but this new board software is A1.[/Edit]
